Where in Central Florida are you located?
My sessions are held in my home in Groveland, Florida. Groveland is in South Lake County next to Clermont. We are approximately 45 minutes from most Orlando areas, about 1 hour from most North Orlando (Seminole County) areas, and about 1½ hours from Tampa. Our clients come from all over Florida, but mostly from the Orlando area. Visit “The Studio” page to view photos of the areas where you’ll have your photos taken.

What happens the day of my session?
When you come in for your session, we’ll have a short consultation were we’ll go over your wardrobe, and talk about your session, expectations, and concerns. I want to make sure that you LOVE your experience as much as I want you to LOVE your photos. Then you’ll sit back and relax while the hair and makeup transformation begins! After your makeover, your session begins! On average, we spend approximately 20 minutes per look. After your session is done, we will take a short 30-40 lunch break. You will go out and grab something for lunch while I download and sort your photos. When you come back from lunch, we will go over your proof gallery and you’ll make your selections at that time.
How long will the session everything take?
Between consultation, makeover, the actual session, lunch break, and photo reveal, you will be here approximately five hours total. Please plan your day accordingly.
How do I book an appointment?
A $100 reservation fee is required to book an appointment. The reservation fee will be discounted from your photo photo purchase. Click here to schedule your appointment.
What’s included with your standard editing?
Standard editing includes adjustment of color, contrast, and composition, and a light skin airbrush enhancement. Most of the photos you see throughout the website included standard editing. Standard editing does NOT include detailed removal of blemishes or body contouring. For the most part, most blemishes including stretchmarks and such are diminished considerably with the standard skin airbrush process. Advanced detailed editing is available for an additional creative fee.
Do you sell prints or canvases?
No, I do not. However, when you purchase digital images, you will receive a print release so that you can obtain prints or canvases anywhere you wish.
Do you sell single/individual digital images instead of a bundle?
No, I do not. Digital images are sold in bundles only as shown above.
If I opt for a payment plan, when do I receive my products?
Products are delivered after you’ve paid your invoice in full.
When would I need to place my order by?
All orders must be placed the day of your session.
What happens to the photos I don’t purchase?
The photos you do not purchase are deleted after your session.
How many proofs will I have to choose from?
It depends on your comfort level and how long it takes you to get ready between changes. On average you can expect to see approximately 50 proofs from your session.
How long does it take to get my photos ready?
Depends on our queue list and the time of the year. It could take 2 to 8 weeks. Please come in for your session at least a month or two before any deadlines to ensure delivery by your due date. If you are doing a payment plan, your photos are not delivered until your invoice is paid in full, therefore, please come in at least four months prior any deadlines.
How do I receive the digital images I purchase?
Purchased digital images are delivered electronically with a download link. Download them to your computer, then burn your own disks or drives.
How far out are you taking appointments?
My schedule is currently open until the end of 2017.
My girlfriend and I want to come in together for our own sessions. Is that possible?
No, it’s not possible. I prefer to take my time with one client at a time, therefore, I don’t schedule multiple client sessions.
How long is my voucher valid for?
Your voucher should have an expiration date.
How long do I have to make my appointment?
You need to make your appointment before your voucher expires.
Can I bring a companion?
No, sorry. It is my experience that clients have a little difficulty connecting with me, take longer to relax, and have difficulty during the posing and coaching session when they are paying attention to another person instead of me. In addition, I don’t have room to spare to keep them away from the shooting areas. Please do not bring companions to your session.
Is there an age minimum for a session?
Yes. We photograph women 21 and over only.
Do you photograph bachelorette parties or groups?
No, I don’t. I’d much rather take my time with one client at a time.
Would you travel to my location or a local hotel for my shoot?
No, I don’t. I only hold sessions at my place.
Do you photograph plus size women?
Yes, I do! In fact, most of my clients are full figure. Unfortunately for me, I can’t show most of my work on my website’s portfolio. However, you many ladies will let me share sneaks from their sessions on my private ladies-only Facebook group. Please join my group to stay up-to-date on last-minute availability, chat with previous costumers, and see more of my work!
Do you photograph men?
No, I don’t photograph men. Women 21 years old and over only.
Do you photograph pregnant women?
Yes, however, keep in mind I do NOT shoot traditional maternity photos. Only boudoir. Therefore, you will be photographed in lingerie just like my regular boudoir sessions. Also, for your safety, I do not photograph pregnant women with a due date four weeks or less away.
I want to keep my photos private. Is this possible?
Absolutely! Your privacy is very important to me. All the ladies you see on my website gave me permission to share their photos. Unless you give me permission, we will NOT share your photos!
Do you provide wardrobe?
I have a small selections of retro dresses sizes 4-10 and a few plus size ones. However, I strongly suggest that you bring at least one outfit that you know it fits you and you LOVE the way it looks.
Where can I get retro wardrobe?
eBay and Amazon sell vintage wardrobe at affordable prices. Their sizes tend to run small, so make sure you take your measurements and match it to the wardrobe piece you are purchasing. The following are popular stores to purchase retro wardrobe:
Do you provide props?
I do have a small selection of props we can use depending on the look you are after.
I have no idea how to pose for the camera; can you help?
Absolutely! Don’t worry about posing. That’s my job! From facial expressions to body posture, you will be guided down to your fingertips to look your best regardless of your body type. I wont ask you to “look” at me sexy. Instead, I will show you exactly how to accomplish that!
Should I tan before my session?
NO, PLEASE DON’T! Tanning tends to look orange and red in photos. Natural skin tones photograph best no matter who pale the skin is. Even out skin tones is NOT included with our standard editing.
